Commentary (New Zealand innings)

The Kiwis will have to bat out of their skins to avoid an innings defeat. Many overs remain today and as predicted early in the day, this could be the final day of the Test series if the Kiwis follow suit in the second innings. Stay tune for the second innings of the Black Caps as they are about to follow on.

The Kiwis started at 47 today and it looked like they would fold up within hundred. However, Watling and Boult strung up a good partnership to take their team over three figures. That doesn't mean that the total will do them any good. The New Zealand openers will be getting ready now as they have been asked to follow on.

A length delivery outside off stump, Watling tries to cut it away but edges it straight to Smith at first slip who takes it as easily as he usually does. Morkel gets his first wicket as well. 121/10

Hot spot shows no edge and Wagner shakes his head in expressive disappointment as he heads back. 62/8

Wagner has been adjudged lbw by the umpire but he goes upstairs for a review. He is probably aware that he won't get a chance to bowl again in this Test so might as well take a chance with the bat.

It should be a mere formality for the hosts to skittle out the remaining four wickets and put the Kiwis in to bat once again. Well, don't be surprised if the Test ends today itself. The Kiwis' talk about all the hard work in the practice sessions hasn't paid off and they will be utterly disappointed with their effort. Stay tuned for the first ball of day 3.

Good morning and welcome to the coverage of day 3 from Port Elizabeth. New Zealand have once again faltered with their batting. The Proteas posted a huge first innings total and bowled brilliantly to pick up six quick wickets. The Kiwis are gleaming down at another low total, below 100.

The Africans will look to grab the rest of the Kiwi wickets and impose the follow on. New Zealand have no other option but to bat well and save the match if they can. That's it from us for the day. Do join us tomorrow for the coverage of Day 3, till then good bye!

It's Stumps on Day 2. South Africa in total control of the match with a terrific performance with the ball and the bat.

Welcome back to the final session of Day 1, we still have 36 overs of play ahead of us. AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla will resume the innings and would like to play right till the end of Day 1.

New Zealand showed signs of a comeback as they picked up two crucial wickets of Smith and Kallis. The South African skipper was looking good in particular but Wagner got the breakthrough. Kallis didn't trouble the scorers much as he scored 8 runs and walked back. South Africa scored 92 runs though. Amla and de Villiers are playing nicely as the home side is nearing a good total. A chance dropped off Amla will hurt the Kiwis probably. Join us in a while for the last session.

The Kiwis will have to bat out of their skins to avoid an innings defeat. Many overs remain today and as predicted early in the day, this could be the final day of the Test series if the Kiwis follow suit in the second innings. Stay tune for the second innings of the Black Caps as they are about to follow on.

The Kiwis started at 47 today and it looked like they would fold up within hundred. However, Watling and Boult strung up a good partnership to take their team over three figures. That doesn't mean that the total will do them any good. The New Zealand openers will be getting ready now as they have been asked to follow on.

44.4 M Morkel to B Watling, OUT! The Kiwis wind up for just 121! Watling perishes in the hunt for quick runs! A length delivery outside off stump, Watling tries to cut it away but edges it straight to Smith at first slip who takes it as easily as he usually does. Morkel gets his first wicket as well. 121/10

Highest 10th wicket partnership this one for the Kiwis against South Africa.

The players are out in the middle. Graeme Smith and Alviro Petersen the openers. Trent Boult to bowl the first over.

New Zealand - Brendon McCullum(c), Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Dean Brownlie, Daniel Flynn, Colin Munro, BJ Watling(w), Doug Bracewell, Neil Wagner, Jeetan Patel, Trent Boult.

South Africa - Graeme Smith(c), Alviro Petersen, Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers(w), Faf du Plessis, Dean Elgar, Robin Peterson, Dale Steyn, Rory Kleinveldt, Morne Morkel.

Toss - South Africa won the toss and elected to bat. James Franklin out due to injury, Colin Munro makes his Test debut. Neil Wagner comes back, Chris Martin out. Rory Kleinveldt in and Vernon Philander out due to injury.

Pitch report - It has grass covering which will assist the new ball. As the match goes on it will go on the slower side. It will have a reasonable carry for the bowlers. The sun is out, a good pitch. If the batsmen plays out the first session it will get better to bat as Shaun Pollock recommends it's a bat first pitch.

Hello everyone to the coverage of the 2nd and final Test of the series between South Africa and New Zealand at Port Elizabeth. After defeating the Kiwis in a humiliating way in the first Test, South Africa will be eyeing a clean sweep. The Proteas are without Philander as he is injured. James Franklin is out as he was injured while bowling in the nets. That should be a sign to worry for New Zealand. It should be another easy game for the number one side but if New Zealand perform to their potential, expect a good contest.

Morkel back on.

It should be a mere formality for the hosts to skittle out the remaining four wickets and put the Kiwis in to bat once again. Well, don't be surprised if the Test ends today itself. The Kiwis' talk about all the hard work in the practice sessions hasn't paid off and they will be utterly disappointed with their effort. Stay tuned for the first ball of day 3.

Good morning and welcome to the coverage of day 3 from Port Elizabeth. New Zealand have once again faltered with their batting. The Proteas posted a huge first innings total and bowled brilliantly to pick up six quick wickets. The Kiwis are gleaming down at another low total, below 100.

The Africans will look to grab the rest of the Kiwi wickets and impose the follow on. New Zealand have no other option but to bat well and save the match if they can. That's it from us for the day. Do join us tomorrow for the coverage of Day 3, till then good bye!

It's Stumps on Day 2. South Africa in total control of the match with a terrific performance with the ball and the bat.
